Terengganu has a long eastern coastline facing the South China Sea.

It used to be a popular destination to watch the giant leatherback turtle lay their eggs but nowadays there are hardly any landings of this huge turtle species. Other turtle species landings are still common.

There is also gas and oil off shore. So you can see the brightly lighted at night refinery at Kertih.



Kuala Terengganu is the capital. Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Redang are two most popular diving islands.

Kenyir Dam is another popular tourist destination for fishing, boating and trekking up to waterfalls and along jungle paths.

    The Floating Mosque sounds so fascinating. The turtles would be grand to see. So would the beaches and diving. Very well executed pages.

    Redang sounds to be a nice place for diving! It is sad to hear how the tourists disturbed the turtles and scared them away! Nice updates!
